You have to have some special reason to be a non-40 player and still be invited.
1. Be a catcher. You have a million guys throwing at once, if you're a catcher, you'll get an invite just so they have someone to throw to.
2. Have some small chance to make club - Bailey fits this category
3. Be a minor league FA. Clubs can throw in an invite as a "sweetner" to get you to sign. So if club x and club y make same offer but club y gives you invite to major league camp......
